The developer behind a project to revitalize two RV parks at the Crescent City (Calif.) Harbor hopes to conduct a beta test this summer by opening a third park with 24 sites — “maybe an Airstream or two” — facing South Beach, according to the Wild Rivers Outpost.

Alex Lemus, CEO of Renewable Energy Capital, plans to fence the old overflow lot to Redwood Harbor Village RV Park, bringing in his own units, including possibly an Airstream travel trailer or a tiny house.

Construction crews will demolish the former Del Norte Yacht & Rowing Club and Crescent City Crab Shack buildings along with the old restrooms, Lemus said. Hemmingsen Contracting Co. will grade the parking lot and, Lemus said, he would bring in temporary mobile bathrooms and showers for park guests.

“We’re going to have a nice higher-end lot there where people can come in and stay,” he told the Wild Rivers Outpost on Monday (April 25). “We’ll have a nice fence all the way around it so it has some security. The idea is to take advantage of the million-dollar views. That view, to me, is looking right down South Beach and the redwood mountain behind it is spectacular.”

Lemus, who answered a request for proposals two years ago to redevelop the port’s on-land properties, entered into lease agreements with the Harbor District earlier this month for its two RV parks. He plans to revitalize both parks, upgrading the electrical systems, the laundry, restroom and shower facilities, and the landscaping.
